We have only two blocks left in this fun sew along from Riley Blake Designs! Today I’m sharing my version of the Checkerboard Star Block in the Building Blocks Quilt!
The Building Blocks Quilt is a free sew along from Riley Blake that is perfect for beginner quilters, or if you want to build up your skills. The block levels build on skill level and you can learn several different block styles and tips!
I’m using my Stardust fabric for the blocks, paired with Riley Blake Linen in Natural. I’m loving this combo and especially the linen as my background. It’s going to be so fun to put it all together!
All the blocks in the quilt are so great! You can see my other versions:
- Friendship Star Block
- Economy Block
- Churn Dash Block
- Ohio Star Block
- Log Cabin Block
- Bear Paw Block
- Apple Pie Block
For every week there is a fabulous block from Cindy Cloward at Riley Blake, walking you through every step of the block. She has great instructions and tips for each – you will learn so much from them!
Checkerboard Star Block – Building Blocks Quilt
I love the method of making the checkerboard center of the star, it’s so much faster than sewing each piece in place individually!
